Abstract

Our aim is to afford a remote person the opportunity to participate virtually in some event by using a surrogate robot to communicate with local participants while moving about freely at the venue. Accordingly, we propose a mutual telexistence surrogate robot system, called TELESAR4, which was designed and constructed by development of the following: an immersive audiovisual system; an omnidirectionally mobile robot with a robot arm and hand; an omnidirectional stereo camera system (VORTEX); a head with a retroreflective screen for embodiment of the remote participant; and a retroreflective projection system for local participants. This paper describes the development of the TELESAR4 system, whose efficacy has been verified through demonstration experiments.
